Greiner vs. Mintzberg?

What's the main difference with Mintzbergs model?
 

 
Mintzberg and Greiner
Maikel
What is the difference between the model of Mintzberg and the one of Greiner? You can't really compare these:
- Mintzberg gives you certain way's to define your organizational configurations. It's meant for typing your company.
- Greiner is specificly interested in growth of organizations, without being interested in the characteristics....
 

 
Mintzberg versus Grenier

I agree with Maikel's answer with one addition, our research indicates you can integrate the 2 models because organizational structure to some degree is a function of the growth stage - example direct supervision for phases 1 and 2 to adhocracy for phase 6.
We have been working on this for the last few years and find a strong correlation between stage and structure.
